Homesteader Recipes

Cooking on the homestead is different than the typical household. When growing your own food you need a way to store your harvest to last you all the way until next year. This means a lot of canning, freezing, and smoking. You also realize just how much blood, sweat, and tears it takes to grow food. Homesteaders tend to come up with ways to have as little waste as possible. Just the fact that you are living rural changes the way you cook. If you run out of something it isn’t as easy as running around the corner to the grocery store; so you buy the staples, and you buy in bulk. We often ask ourselves, when throwing down wads of cash, can we make that? For us this extends beyond food and has led us to dabble in making our own wine, cider, and beer. We hope that these recipes will be useful for anyone that wants to be less dependent on others for one of the most necessary things in life: alcohol food.
